  • 1)-Goto Device manager >view by connection > Enabled GPS driver

    2)-If possible, use Notepad to create 2 registry files LogOn and NetworkloOn as below:

    2-1) LogOn.reg


    2-2) NetworkIoOn.reg


    3)-Click to run the 2 registry above.

    4)-Find a clear location > Reboot your laptop > Run software Sensor Diagnostic Tool .

    5)-Don't worry about "The pipe is closed " > wait for 2-3 minutes > the yellow "Initializing" will turn green "Ready".

    6)-You may repeat step (4) with or without reboot.

    (*) Good luck!
